STUTTGART, Germany (AP) Home favorite Angelique Kerber rallied to upset Caroline Wozniacki 3-6, 6-1, 7-5 in the final of the Porsche Grand Prix for her second straight title on Sunday.

After losing the opening set, Kerber twice broke the fourth-seeded Dane in the second. Wozniacki saved three match points at 6-5 in the third set, but Kerber took her fourth chance to win in 2 hours, 4 minutes.
